Bookends is a full-featured bibliography/reference and information-management system for students and professionals.
Access the power of Bookends directly from Mellel, Nisus Writer Pro, or MS Word (including Word 2011): Bookends allows you to scan your existing word-processor files and automatically generate finished manuscripts with properly formatted bibliographies. You can also scan Apple Pages ’08, ’09, and 5, and OpenOffice 3 files, or RTF files saved from any word processor.
Bookends allows you to share your references over the Internet with anyone, on any platform. And with Bookends, you can directly search and import references from numerous sources:
- Web of Science
- Google Scholar
- Library of Congress
- and hundreds of other online sources.
Or use a built-in browser to download references with PDF’s and/or Web pages. Also, with automatic searches of PubMed, you can discover articles as soon as they’re published. Bookends allows for powerful group-based searches, with static, smart, and virtual groups.
Bookends also offers a robust assortment of file attachment features:
- Attach any file (such as a PDF) to a reference and view or open it instantly.
- Automatically rename and organize PDF files on-the-fly.
- Automatically download and attach the PDF of an article from the Internet if you have access permission.
- Automatically locate and attach PDF’s on your hard drive.
Sync your library with Bookends On Tap on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, so that you have your references and PDF’s with you, wherever you are.
Automated repair of damaged indexes
- If Verify detects a problem with the library, Bookends will reindex it without user intervention. This will result in fewer problems being reported and fewer suggestions to Rebuild.
- Changes in cloud sync should result in fewer requests for authentication from Apple
- Copy Citation and scanning have been updated to work with Microsoft Word version 16.x
Updated import from Google Scholar to deal with changes made by Google
- Bookends will import the best information it can obtain from Google Scholar.
Better detection of a linked word processor
- Bookends will now recognize the linked word processor if its name has been changed in the Finder.
Improved scanning of text files
- Bookends will assume the scanned text file has the same encoding as the bibliography output (e.g. plain text, UTF-8, or UTF-16). If the output is incompatible with plain text files (e.g. Styled Text), the text file will be assumed to be encoded as UTF-8.
